All the verses follow the pattern for verse one, except for verse 3!

3rd Verse: this one's different, it starts with G, goes to C,
G, A#5, E, A, then one choppy strum of F. You'll have to figure out the strumming 
because it's easy to do but it takes up too much tab space.

(Band Tacet: Time to clap your hands )

For the fills, stay around the 10th fret. The fills should be done on the spot, in my opinion.
Just mess with them.

Repeat whatever you need to after that and be sure to thank the crowd as they applaud you *wink wink*


*********************************************************************************************

H       = hammer-on
P       = pull-off
/       = slide
13b(15) = strike the note then bend it up one full step so it sounds like the fifteenth fret
~~~     = vibrato
16b(18)r(16) = strike note, bend it up to pitch, then release it, but don't strike the 
you release to!
>       = strum harder
